Shop Eighty4! Swatches+ Review

Hello to whoever is reading this :) I was in a rut for a while in the Blogger world. I'm more active over on my IG, but these polishes took me out of my funk and I wanted to post about them!

Fefe Duran from Eighty4 polish so graciously sent me 6 polishes to swatch and review for those inquiring about the brand. So onward to some photos!
P.s All swatches were finished with two coats of Out the Door. 

Dragon Lust: is a gorgeous magenta to plum thermal with a pretty prominent scattered holo for a thermal. It comes out a lot in my photos despite being in a lightbox! This is two coats. The first went on a little patchy (but that could be my error since it was a little cuticle drag) and the second coat leveled everything out perfectly. 

Candy Corn: If USPS hadn't delivered my package to the wrong place, I totally could have had it before Halloween. This is the perfect color! It is a yellow to orange thermal with a scattered holo finish as well. This is quite sheer, and my swatch is at four thin coats. But it doesn't feel thick on the nail at all! And I have pretty visible VNL so it may be a different case for others. I would suggest layering over white as well.

Lobster hands or what?! Oranges make my camera freak out I'm sorry. I promise this is color accurate though. :)

Pink Sugar: Three thin coats of this gorgeous barbie pink holo. My top pick from the bunch. It's so flattering on my skin tone and I can imagine it's one of those pink shades anyone can wear!

 Tang: This is seriously the brightest, most eye-searing orange neon polish I have ever seen. So be aware neons are notoriously hard to capture! My camera is making it come off as a deeper orange than it is. But oh my gosh you could stop traffic with this, I love it! This is three coats (no undies!) It is opaque at two, I just have really visible VNL all the time! My Instagram has a slightly better color accurate photo.

 Galaxy Green: a deep green with a black base with a pearlescent finish. This is two coats, watch out for brush strokes!

Colorfett: Neon. Glitter. Does anything else really need to be said? This fun mix has squares and hexes of bright blue, lie, red, and pink colors. It would look amazing layered over any color but I've chosen to show two coats of Colorfetti over O.P.I My Vampire is Buff.

 Class & Sass: A pleasant mix of white, turquoise, and lilac hex and square glitters. I've layered one coat of it over Wet n Wild Teal Slowly and See. I'm imagining this looking pretty over mint as well!

Class & Sass at 1,2, and three coats

Colorfetti at 1,2, and 3 coats

 And everyone loves macros! I thought these looked too cool not to share. Especially Colorfetti!

Overall I am very impressed with the quality of all of these! I can't wait to try more of the thermals I didn't get my hands on. I also really loved working with the glitters. My top picks are Candy Corn, Class & Sass, and Pink Sugar!

Eighty4 polishes can be purchased here, and they run $8-$9 which is a pretty good deal! :)

Thanks for reading! Hopefully this post gets me back into the swing of blogging. Especially since I rebuilt my lightbox! Bare with me as I adjust.

A-England Fated Prince

I was tempted to just name this post "perfection," because that's seriously what this shade is. I don't know how Adina does it but her polishes are absolutely gorgeous AND they apply like a dream. Sorcery I tell you!

Fated Prince (Burne Jones Dream Collection) is the most stunning light charcoal grey color with a surprising holographic addition that flashes olive green. I swear I was staring at my hands all day when I was wearing this. How can a polish have so many different color elements in it yet still blend together so flawlessly!?

 *trumpets and fanfare* DAT HOLO. If I haven't convinced you to buy this... you should after seeing this photo. This is definitely one of my top favorites now. Oh A-England, I love you!

Also. My topcoat. TOO. SHINY. Thanks Glossy Glam!
